If you are interested in leasing or just have a question
about terms, sending an email to our leasing department is
the easiest and fastest route of inquiry.
Each of our
landmen have direct phone lines as well if you prefer a phone
call. If using email, please include the legal description
of your land(s) and current contact information including
phone number and email so that we
can reply to you promptly.
Our leasing agents hail from rural communities, so they have natural
rapport with “small town” people, typically rural residents
who are among the savviest of landowners. SFI Energy’s
grounded, friendly, and relaxed interaction with these owners has
enabled us to secure leases that larger companies were
unable to acquire.
We are the first company many
landowners call – including many with whom we have never
worked – when they receive offers from other brokers and are
worried about terms and bonuses or royalties, or are
confused by jargon.
Whether it's a minor interest in a
lower-rated area, or an owner with major acreage in a prime
play, SFI Energy works just as hard for the small interest
owner as it does the large.
Common Leasing Terms
Money paid to the landowner in consideration of signing an oil and gas lease. This is an upfront payment made upon
confirmation of ownership.
A percentage (expressed as a fraction) of the proceeds from an producing well that is paid
to the landowner, proportionate to the amount of mineral
interest the landowner owns in the section where the producing well lies.
